Attended an outdoor viewing of Dazed & Confused with food trucks. The movie was great. More food trucks would have helped reduce the long lines and waits for food & drink. Parking is an issue. Recommend Uber or other transportation option.

Griffith Park is not as muich an urban haven as Central Park in Manhattan or Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, but it has lots of diverse spots to enjoy your family or a date. While most folks enter near Riverside Drive, where the road goes past the pony rides, the little train depot, the carousel, and eventually the Autry... More

Griffith Park is quite large with lots of different things to do. There are many beautiful old trees to picnic under and lots of hiking trails. It's a nice place to while away a Sunday afternoon.

If you have never been to L.A. or, have been but wondered where this view is, it's Griffith Park, and the Griffith Park Observatory. There is hiking, and biking, and it's an all around great place. I highly recommend this as a place to go in L.A..

We had to get our steps in, and since we were already in the area checking out the observatory, we stopped by to check this out. It was a nice park with decent trails in a good neighborhood. The views impressed looking down at the city. A lot of it you see in various tv's and movies, which is nice... More

We went here on a Sunday around 11:30 and were able to easily find parking. Also, it was FREE!! We took a short hike to get some nice views of the Hollywood sign. This hike doesn't go to the sign itself like we were hoping. Apparently that is a 5 mile hike somewhere else in the area. We took a... More

We've visited the Griffith Park Observatory many times in the past 20 years, while our children were growing up. In recent years, the observatory has been renovated to include a huge lower level including a large theatre and restaurant. Admission is free, parking is free, so there is no reason to not visit. The observatories are open for viewing planets... More

This park is really nice and very big. You really must spend a day walking there because nature is very beautiful. Speccially the trees are very beautiful.
